Mars Square Pluto 22 February 2017

Mars Square Pluto TransitMars square Pluto in the natal chart creates a strong desire to assert your dominance and achieve a position of power in life. The tremendous drive and ambition of this aspect, plus endless energy reserves and perseverance, means that you can in fact achieve your desire for power and influence.

Although you do have this tremendous energy to draw on, the assertiveness of the Mars square Pluto energy can sometimes turn to aggressiveness if your ambitions are blocked, or your goals challenged by others. There may be a tendency to bottle up any anger and resentment, which would only result in an outburst of destructive rage.

To avoid potential temper tantrums, you will have to moderate this intense energy by focusing on continuous hard work towards your ambitious goals. This should not be too much of a challenge given your strong work ethic and determination to succeed. However, there is still the possibility of your rise to power resulting in aggressive actions from others. These other people or even organizations, will feel threatened by your increasing power. The key to gaining the upper hand is to remain focused on your own objectives, and resisting the urge to retaliate, or undermine your enemies.

Mars Square Pluto Transit

Transiting Mars square Pluto means power struggles and confrontations. This is because of your intense desire to gain control over others, or of situations. You may also notice a need to climb the ladder and achieve more a powerful position in your profession. Even if you chose to play it safe during this Mars square Pluto transit, you may have to deal with other people trying to dominate you or challenge your ego or position at work.

You see, by repressing the strong urge to achieve your objectives, this internalized hot energy will be expressed through the aggressive actions of others, or of groups of people. So to avoid being a victim, it is better to strive for success but do so in a careful manner. Avoid ruthlessness, jealousy and underhand tactics. Try not to be overly assertive or make others feel threatened. This especially applies to superiors or those in a position of authority. People with more power than you will have the upper hand during this transit, so now is not the time to be starting fights and making enemies.

  1. Hi Jamie! I am sorry for the misplaced question but I wasn’t able to comment under the Pisces April forecast post. First of all, thank you SO much for posting early and moreover for an incredibly insightful post. I enjoy reading your work so much. Quick question: I noticed that you only mentioned the Grand Cross for Decan 2 Pisces. Why not for me (Decan 1)? Will I not be affected by the grand cross in April? Thank you again!!

    • Good question Ramani. it is because all the planets in the grand cross are about 14 degrees of their signs, so basically in the middle of decan 2 of the cardinal signs. The grand cross will affect each and every one of us generally. But more directly if you have a planet in decan 2 of any sign.

  2. On Monday and Tuesday of last week, I had two consecutive instances of road rage where I was the recipient of harsh language from another driver even though I did nothing wrong. They were both potentially violent situations, but I stood my ground. I figured something like this would probably show up in a transit chart. Big surprise. Transiting Mars square Pluto was in effect. I knew Mars was involved somehow but I wasn’t sure how. This aspect makes a lot of sense for what happened. The people felt imposed upon by me as though I was challenging them when I wasn’t. Or maybe they were in the mood to challenge me since I tend to think of the transiting planet to represent the person, in this case Mars. It is indeed a time to be careful in situations where people are known to be quick-tempered. The big question is how will Pluto respond to aggressive Mars?

  3. hi jamie , i wanted to ask how many degrees do you use for the orbs ? for any square aspect

    • Good question Chris, As a rough guide I would say 4 degrees for this kind of aspect and up to 6 degrees for ones involving Sun or Moon. More for conjunctions and a little less for easy aspects like sextiles and trines.

      • Thanks for replying Jamie , I have another question: I have my mars in leo in the 3rd house at 22 degrees conjuct my part of fortune at 27 degrees and my part of fortune square my pluto at the same degree 27 scorpio pluto in the 6th ( part of fortune is in leo in the 3rd )

        • What does it mean to have my mars conjuct part of fortune and my part of fortune square pluto?

          • The orbs arae a little wide but I would think that the happiness of your soul depends a lot on controlling you desires and aggression. There may be some test to teach you not to abuse your power by trying to control others through being bossy or threatening in any way.

  4. On the same day, i will have transiting mars conjunct natal uranus in 3th house.Mars ruls 5th and 10th houses, uranus ruls 7 and 8 houses 🙁 Should i be worry?

    • I would be avoiding car racing or using chainsaws. But you will need to do something to burn up that impulsive energy safely, like exercise or non-contact sport. Even something creative would help by burning up the energy with your imagination, but muscles will burn it quicker. Enough to bring up a sweat.

  5. Transiting Mars will be conjunct natal Pluto in Libra, opposite natal Sun in Aries
    This year has been such a rollercoaster, with Uranus tightly conjunct my Sun.So this cardinal T square will trigger my natal Sun- Pluto oposition. A lot of powerful energy is about to unleash.

  6. is Mars square Pluto associated with cancer desease and a persons “involvment’in a war zone?

    • Hi Angel, I can definitely see the link to a war zone, but not necessarily cancer. Although there is the association with Pluto with the disease, Jupiter or Neptune would have more impact than Mars I would think. Many of the fixed stars also relate to health issues in certain parts of the body.

  7. Hi Jamie , it’s Chris again . I just wanted to ask for my part of fortune in leo, it’s squarring my Pluto at the same degree 29’02 in the 6th Scorpio. Does it indicate a strong physical strength?

  8. How can I apply regulus on the part of fortune ? The same as for the ascendant ? And I also have my Mars conjunct ras El assad, what does it mean ?

    • That’s right, because POF is calculated from the Ascendant. But is also uses Sun and Moon so you can blend all three and keep the best parts of them. If there is nothing mentioned for a particular planet with a star then I would stick to the general description.

      • HI Jamie , i have one last question . Are the stars appliable for the draconic chart ?

          • Not many modern astrologers would say that. Even the stars with the worst reputations have a positive influence. As I add more celebrities to the lists of conjunctions it will become clearer, and less scarier.

  9. My sister has this aspect with an orb of 0.28 degrees and boy has there been power struggles between us throughout our lives! She’s always wanted to control over the years and it’s drove me mad!
